Tent, Trailer and RV Camping

Jalama Beach County Park maintains 107 campsites, all overlooking the ocean or beachfront. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ pit, with hot showers, restrooms and water nearby. 31 sites offer electrical hookups, and dump stations are available.

Campsites reservations are available online by clicking on the "Make a Reservation!" button on the left. Reservations may be made up to 6 months, to the day, of the check-in date.  Keep in mind that summer is our busiest time, and that campsites fill fast. Check-out is 1:00 pm. Campers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

For the safety and enjoyment of all, a maximum of 8 persons and/or 2 vehicles are allowed to be at any single campsite at any time. These limits will be strictly enforced and groups that exceed any of these limits will be required to purchase and set up at an additional campsite. If no additional campsites are available, you may be asked to leave the park. Vehicles MUST be parked at the location of the parking permit.

Failure to comply with park rules can result in a County Notice to Appear Citation with fine and/or eviction. Santa Barbara County Code Chapter 26:

Sec. 26-61- Vehicle parking at campsite. No person shall park, permit, or maintain more than two motor vehicles at any campsite within any county recreation area without the prior authorization of a CSD employee on duty within the area.

Sec. 26-65- Camp sanitation; occupancy limit. A) No more than eight persons shall be permitted in any designated campsite without prior approval of the park employee on duty. B) It shall be unlawful to occupy more space for camping purposes than the campsite designated. C) The size, type and arrangement of camping equipment shall be suitable for the design of the campsite and the space provided.

Quiet hours at the park are from 10:00PM to 8:00AM. During these times, no noise shall be heard beyond the area of your specific campsite(s). All radios, generators, and vehicle motors must be off, and no musical instruments are to be used. All voices need to be kept to a volume to only be heard in your own campsite. Beyond these times, courtesy to others will always be enforced in terms of music, voices and obnoxious noises.
